A disgruntled former employee shot at least two international workers from Médecins Sans Frontières at the charity's office in the Somali capital Mogadishu, the group said yesterday. At least one person was killed.

Ahmed Ali, a security guard for the group, said the Somali employee who ran its logistics was dismissed from his job on Wednesday.

Suspicion following a violent attack often falls on the militant group al-Shabaab. But it appeared the insurgents had no hand in this incident, and in fact were the first to report that an attack was under way at the Médecins Sans Frontières compound, putting out a series of tweets.
